Very quiet here on a summer Monday during Covid. All in all an enjoyable dinner, but the kitchen is not firing on all cylinders. Excellent salads, steaks good, not great. My NY Strip was way overcooked. Sides: Brussel Sprouts were perfect/fantastic... served hot. Mashed potatoes and the Creamed Spinach good but not very hot.

Looking for things to improve here as they ramp back up after Covid closure.

Delicious food, excellent atmosphere, and the best team in Boston. The people commenting about the bread really need to simmer down.
Every experience I've had at The Palm has been flawless - this includes lunch, dinner, and drinks. After being forced to shut down, they've reopened while balancing dozens of restrictions and still do everything they can to accommodate you and give you the meal you came back for.
Perfectly cooked steaks, the largest (and best prepared) chicken parm you'll find in Boston, and great wine selection.
Plus, they really do treat you like family.

We love the spot , but the service was very off this time. The food was cold and when it came back had more things added that changed the taste completely. they took it off the bill which was nice of them ,but disappointing from wanting what you came for. we will be back tho ..

It's early in the Covid-19 stage whereby restaurants can use their dining rooms. No problem here, they have a giant space with which to use and provide lots of spacing btw tables. Our crab cake starter was fantastic... served with an excellent crab sauce... this dish alone demonstrates what the kitchen is capable of here. Chicken parm had a great sauce and the perfect amount of cheese.

Miss the bread service they are known for. Sides (spinach, fries, etc.) at $16 seems a bit steep.

Getting ready for their Summer Lobster Special... a great time to check out their large lobsters, 4lb and up, at a better price.

I'm a big fan of The Boston Palm. Carlos and his team do an excellent job of making you feel welcome and delivering an upscale experience. Everything was perfect. I hope the new ownership enhances what The Palm already does very well. I look forward to my next visit.

Fantastic place, glad things are opening back up. Had dinner outside, very peaceful and enjoyable. Service was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. I enjoyed a nice salad and filet mignon. Key Lime Tart for dessert was amazing. The servings were right sized and cooked perfectly. I love the outdoor area but indoor looks cozy too especially for a winter's night. I would return and recommend. Thanks Palm

I wish they had told us it was an hour and a half maximum time, I got a full glass of wine just three minutes before manager asked us to leave, it would have been nice not to have to pay for a drink I couldn’t drink. Server was great, but the female who asked us to leave was not very nice about it nor offered to take the round we just recieved off the bill.

Excellent food and service. Waitress was very attentive and kind. The free birthday cake was a nice touch.

Steak and lobster + chicken Parmesan is a must-order when you come to the Palm.

Just reopened amid the Covid-19 crisis and only serving on the patio. Seems like they need to get things organized a bit more. My burger was way overcooked... fries were good. Will be interesting to see how this place does moving forward.

We were greeted promptly as we entered, we had a reservation and were seated immediately. The server acknowledged us right away and asked if we'd like to start with a drink. After serving drinks, asked if we had any questions about the menu. We ordered appetizers and entrees to share, the server asked if we'd like everything served at one time. The food came out without any delays. The steak was overcooked and the server was very accommodating and took it back to have another prepared without any fuss. After bringing back the second steak the server checked to make sure it was cooked to our preference. The service was friendly and efficient without being overbearing or pushy. We had a nice experience dining at this restaurant and would return again.

Disappointed at staff behavior during restaurant week. Had to basically beg for the RW menu. Completely opposite of capital grille where they not only embraced it but pricing was fair and reasonable. Extra $12 for pasta and $9 for every side? Highway robbery. Won’t be back. Food was good but I’ll keep any RW outing to Capital Grille or Morton’s where it’s embraced. And they’ll get our regular business since it was so delightful.

Steak $78 came out raw although was supposed to be medium . Asked if it could be warmed up and 15” later came back charred. After 30” got another one but totally disrupted our dinner . I ordered desert to eat while he ate his steak finally and it tasted like it was 6 months old . Yuck.
Big disappointment all the way around .
Overrated . Won’t be back . Bummer .

I was very disappointed with my restaurant week dinner. The food came out subpar, was not HOT enough (heat hot) and felt like it was sitting out long before it was brought to our table. Out server was AWESOME, but I do not think I will be dinning back there again anytime soon with the overprices that you charge.
